Elmo has “Godlike Status” at Keith’s House

Country star wakes up to Sesame Street theme song.

Sure, millions around the world have paid to see Keith Urban perform. But for Keith's 3-year-old daughter, Sunday Rose, it's Sesame Street's Elmo who is her entertainment hero.

“Elmo has God-like mythical status at our house at this stage,” Keith tells The Tennessean newspaper.

“This morning I was woken up [at 7] with our daughter Sunday coming in singing the theme to Sesame Street, so what a superb way to wake up in the morning,” Keith says. “That’s kind of a sleep-in for me, which is normally getting up at 6 with the kids.”

So how does Keith wake up with the kids after playing a late-night gig? Plenty of alarm clocks.

“When I get home if I go to bed at 2 in the morning, it’s pretty hard getting up at 6, but I don’t want to get up at 10 and miss all the morning with my wife and my daughters,” he tells the newspaper. “So, I just push through. If I get home at 2, I’ll get up at 6 and have breakfast with everybody and then I’ll sneak back to bed for an hour or so. My wife will work out, I'll go back to bed.”
